I got it! Finally! The computers at the library finally came back on line yesterday and I was able to get my library card and the first book on my list of the Top Ten Banned Books. I choose Uncle Tom's Cabin by Herriet Beecher Stowe. The book is due back to the library on 12/30 and I'm hoping to finish it by then but if not, I'll have to renew it. I'm pretty excited about the book.

Proof of library card and book! (Yes I know I look terrible and am all mismatched but what do you expect for the day following a Metallica concert? For Pete sake, I didn't even start my day until noon! lol)
This last week has been a very eventful week so far. Monday we played hookie and went snow wheeling, Tuesday was Metallica (\m/, rock on baby!) and today we went out to lunch at BJ's Brewery. They brew their own beers and Hubbs and I got to try a couple of new beers. Hubbs likes the dark stuff and tried the Tatonka Stout and the PM Porter. I'm not much of a fan of dark beer so I went with Piranha Pale Ale and also tried a sample of the Nutty Brewnette. I think next time we go I'm going to get the Nutty Brewnette. It was really good but thick.

The beer was great and the food was awesome but the company was even better!

The food was sooo good at BJ's. I'd heard great things about it from friends but every time we go by there it's either packed or we're not hungry. We were actually headed to another restaurant when I suggested that we try it out. I figured it couldn't be that packed on a Wednesday at 1pm. Thankfully it wasn't packed. Hubbs got a BBQ steak sandwich that was really awesome. The beef was tender and the BBQ sauce was out of this world. Very tasty and tangy. I had the Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. The chicken was really tender and the sauce was very creamy. Every thing was great and our server was awesome.

The last three days have been really good but sadly I'm back at work today. It's a one day work week for me since tomorrow is a furlough day. On one hand I'm glad that I only have to work 4 days a week but on the other losing a 25% of my pay sucks. If and when they decide to go back to a 5 day work week I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm loving being off at 3:30 everyday and getting to spend more time at home but I'm going to miss having that extra day off. Not sure what I'm going to do when that day comes but for now, I'm enjoying spending more time at home with Hubbs and having 4 day work weeks.
